What is this place?

My name is Andrea, or Mrs H if you prefer formalities (let’s not stand on ceremony, though!).

I started writing my blog in 2009, chronicling life as a married gal and trotting the world in pursuit of my Navy husband.  I moved the blog over here to Farm and Hearth in 2014 when the scope and audience of the blog began to expand and evolve, necessitating a facelift, a platform shift, and a new mission!  No longer serving just the newlywed gals, now our audience includes culinary professionals, farming enthusiasts and anecdote-seekers. Photographic lovers, recipe makers, garden gardeners and chicken keepers are just a few of the people that ply the pages here; readers, artists and lovers all.

As a yoga teacher, food preservationist, essential oil enthusiast, food historian and a mommy to our little boy, I bring all these joyful pursuits together under one sunny beach umbrella here on the blog (did I mention I love beaches, too?  Sunny ones, especially, but the raging coasts of the Pacific Northwest will always be a stormy home to me!).



What brings you here today?  We meet under the strangest circumstances sometimes, so why not on a blog?  Drop me a line and I’ll write you back. I love chatting, and you could be a good friend.
